Dangerous Invitations #

Released 11/19/2002

Description: The writer missed an occasion for a intelligent ending. The main hero (Ethan) works for a pc minigame company. He is under pressure to come up with concepts for a fresh video game. At the end of the movie, he gives his concepts to his boss. This is where there should have been a intelligent twist: Ethan's concept could have been the storyline of the movie, (i.e. what he just went though) especially the war at the end. The minigame company should even test the warehouse (which they had already paid for) as the background for the game. The rest of the film was predictable because the villain showed his hand very early.

The Candy Kid Reviews:

When Ethel Cassity quits his candy parlor to go work at Oliver Hardy's competing establishment, Leo White hires Billy West to blow up up his rival's shop.Billy West was the most successful of the Chaplin imitators, and here he is, doing Chaplin from Keystone. While he had the mannerisms and gags down to a T, West everytime wound up doing Chaplin from a several years earlier, while Chaplin kept on refining and expanding his character. In his efforts, West liked hire Chaplin's old collaborators like White and another comics, like the young Hardy to enjoy the large nasty foil whom Eric Campbell was to Charley.Such was the overwhelming success of Chaplin and the demand for more Chaplin pictures than the true one should provide, that there were half a dozen imitators. Billy had some true talent, but it wasn't until the early 1920s that he struck out on his own and developed his own comic persona. Still, films like this one were funny and popular.


In the 1910s, Charlie Chaplin became so popular that there were a lot of immitators. Actors like Billy West would dress up as the Tramp hero and I am cute sure Chaplin hated this....but what was he to do? Among the most popular of these faux Chaplins was Billy West and he stars with Oliver Hardy in "The Candy Kid".The first portion of the movie is better than the second. In the first, a bunch of guys are waiting in an office for some sort of job interview. In the second portion, Billy is offered a job as an anarchist and they give him bombs to toss about at folks. His response really makes tiny sense...nor is the premise totally realized. In fact, often instead of humor, the movie relies on West making faces and not much more. Disappointing.
